SBRs (Short-Barreled Rifles) offer a lot of practicality in a small package, for a price that is significantly less than the select-fire rifle or sub gun. Manufacturers such as CMMG, LaRue Tactical, LWRC International, Stag Arms, Troy Industries, Wilson Combat and Noveske Rifle Works (above represent a wide range of products and price points to meet the specific needs of the end-user.

larue-stealthThe 12″ LaRue Stealth can serve in both a CQB and precision rifle role. It is shown here equipped with a Magpul PRS stock, Leupold MK 4 scope with LaRue mount, and SureFire’s new Mini suppressor.

The Noveske Rifeworks upper is based on a VLTOR upper receiver and features a 10.5″ polygonal-rifled barrel, Noveske rail, and the Switchblock. It is also shown with the Aimpoint T-1 and SureFire Mini suppressor.

Troy Industries offers the M7 conversion as a kit. Note the Troy vertical grip, pistol grip and sights. The Aimpoint T-1 is mounted on the shorter LaRue mount for an absolute co-index. The complete rifle can be broken down and transported in the factory-provided Hardigg case.

    i really enjoyed this article because it was on s
    omething different than the same old ” NEW GUN
    but i was really disappointed that Rob did not mention the vest he was wearing. Authors usually do and were a person can buy one.I have searched the web stores and called the magazine and was told it was made by P.A.C.A but all i come up with is P.A.C.A. body armor.I really like this vest becase it has handgun pouches sewn on the magazine pouches instead of sloppy MOLLE pouches attached to a vest. Rob i hope you get this comment and write me a short note were i can purchase one, i would really appreciate it as i am going crazy spending hours on the web trying to find it. Thank you
